Completely surprisingly, a new post-apocalyptic MMO survival game was announced with The Day Before. A first gameplay trailer that shows the game as a mix of The Last of Us and The Division works – but see for yourself first:
The Day Before: First gameplay shows how dangerous the open world is in survival MMO
The stealth and combat system as well as the looting of opponents are very reminiscent of The Last of Us, while the urban open world (with apparently many freely accessible buildings) looks more like The Division.
Graphically, the chic lighting including reflections (in puddles or on the car roofs) and the realistic physics effects (easy to see in the fight scene from 2:40 a.m.) stand out. This creates an overall believable and dense atmosphere.
Bei Youtube but many viewers are also skeptical About the project: The video seems very posed and like a long script sequence instead of real game scenes. “The whole thing looks a bit like fake, I would be very cautiously optimistic”, writes a user.

What is the game about?
The Day Before is set in an end time version of the USA. Zombies and looters are omnipresent dangers there. The game character wakes up without memories and not only has to find answers, but also resources to survive – as the developer summarizes.
Loot is supposed to play an important role and can be found in wrecked cars, apartments or high-rise buildings. Hordes of infected people like to lurk there, as the trailer shows. One should explore the open world on foot or in different vehicles. The first screenshots convey a few impressions from the game world:
